Telemedicine in Pharmacy

  • Telemedicine-
    • Electronic data exchange between prescriber & pharmacy
    • Dr. can check the PBM formulary & DUR info on their PDA
    • PBM’s will capture more data & thus have a greater power to influence the prescriber.  Rx hub is owned by PBM.
  • 3 types of internet pharmacies
    • Legitimate pharmacies (minority)- like a mail order pharmacy.  Dispense given a valid Rx.
    • Information providers- provide free info.  Counseling for a fee.  NO DISPENSING
    • Bogus- get drugs without a Rx, may be illegally imported, may or may not have a legit doctor overview surveys patients fill out in order to get drugs.
